How does the blues influence your writing style?

The strong, driving rhythms of the blues help to accent the meter and punch of my poems. I hear the riffs in my  head and before long I have a poem appear on paper.

How did the blues, or a particular musician or song, inspire the work you will present at Waterline?

The twang of the dobro or open tuning for bottle neck slides raises the hairs on my neck :  “Sweet Home Chicago,”  a classic Robert Johnson, “Trouble in Mind,”  a favorite sung by Lightnin’ Hopkins.
